Rita Clucas smWelcome to the first installment of Mothers With a Mission.  I am so glad you are here and I hope you plan to check in often because I am so looking forward to linking arms with you in this journey of motherhood.  As the mother of four, ages seven to nineteen, I have experienced the tears and the joys, the disappointments and the rewards of being a mommy.  I have had those days when I could smile because I “got it right” and I have had those nights of plaguing doubts and fears.  Through it all, I know I could not have done it and can not continue to do it alone.  I am grateful for those who came alongside me and offered everything from practical help in the kitchen, to a word of encouragement on tough days, to a safe place to have a meltdown (lots of those in my case).  If any of those things sound like something you’d appreciate, then let’s stick together.  Any time you have a coffee break, I’d love for you to join me and maybe we’ll both be better for it.

    • Rita, what a beautiful welcome! How exciting to be a part of this amazing journey called Motherhood! My girls, now 23 and 27, have been God’s most incredible blessings in my life! I saw a funny quote recently, “Behind every successful child is a mom pretty sure she is doing it all wrong”. Many days we feel we are doing it all wrong, and many days we just explode with joy as moms! Having our Heavenly Father’s arms to run to , to rejoice with, and to guide us is truly incredible! I am so excited that God has called us forth to this new ministry and share this high calling of motherhood! I know His hand is on us and He will lead us and equip us to love and encourage one another on this beautiful path called Motherhood! It is going to be a blast!


    • You have NO idea how excited I am Candy.  I know it was just a welcome post, but my mind is already thinking of all the things I’d love to chat about.  Finally!  The Lord has provided a means to speak to women on a heart level about the subject I care most about except Jesus, and I get to talk about both.  Praying wholeheartedly that God would use me in this to minister to moms and encourage them to hang in there because I know it’s worth it.  Thank you so much for inviting me on this journey with you.  I am so thankful!–Rita
